Deleuze and the Rhizome

Another interest of mine is the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, particularly the concepts of the rhizome, and smooth versus striated space. I think the rhizome concept may serve me well for interpretive 2-D work. A rhizome may be represented as a single line, and defined through its interactions with other rhizome-lines. Another thing that excites me about the 2-D interpretation of this philosophy is that it may lend itself to interpretations of smooth and striated space later on, while remaining inherently random and not clouding my 2-D judgment with 3-D predeterminations.
